We have been on the forefront for developing the industry standards of the elemental system of measurement and uniformat. By using innovative technology that allows us to access more relevant data for each individual project, graphic area analysis, and our extensive bid and reconciliation data, we are able to benchmark numerous buildings at appropriate current levels. This provides owners and architects with detailed and accurate costing reports based on information from our comprehensive database, knowledgeable staff, and developed processes. Our estimates fall within 5% of bids 19 times out of 20, recognizing that variances from these projections can occur due to lack or surplus of bidders at time of bid, proprietary specifications, contractual and procurement practice, documentation and tendering changes, and contractor's errors and omissions, etc.
